Movie Review: Deadpool

No wait, I'm not going to give a full review.  Here's what I thought of it: great fun, 3.25 stars out of 4.

Now, will you like it?  That depends a lot on you.  It's full of profanity-laced graphic cartoon violence, and that does not appeal to everyone.  Here are two reviewers who I regularly read and respect, one who loved the move (Reelviews), one who hated it (Flikfilospher).  Scroll down on the Reelviews review and there's the red-band trailer.  Watch that, it's an honest trailer, it's a fair sampling of the move.  If it appeals, then you'll like the move.  If it appalls, then you'd best not go.

Two more bonus reviews.  First from a friend who's a fan of the comic book source; he gives it a thumbs-up, said it's true to the source material.  Finally, there's the review over at Liberty mag, which sports the tagline Not for everyone – and that's OK.  Yeah, that's about right.  Watch the trailer, you'll know very quickly.

Anyway, I thought it was pretty damn good.
